Looking Back: Alternative Photography in the Digital Age — Panel Discussion

This panel on Alternative Photography addresses the increased interest in analog photography in the current digital age. Many photographers, especially artists, find their vision is not well served by current digital photographic practices. Alternative, analog film based and original processes offer a diverse palette for artists who feel digital doesn’t work well with their vision and working methods. Moderated by Geoffrey Berliner with Jolene Lupo, Molly Rapp, and Daniel Estabrook.

Paris vs Shanghai, Mirrors between East and West

A priori there is nothing  common between Paris and Shanghai.  Bringing together these two different cities may seem surprising but the confrontation through images seemed particularly interesting because I worked for several years on a project called “Black Light”.

Higher-than-normal high tides push into the harbor, funneling into the river, causing a broad wave that can reach up to 30 feet high. If the waves surge over the banks, spectators can be swept up, pushed along walkways or down embankments. Below, I’ve gathered images from the past few years of the Qiantang bore tides.
